On the morning of 26th February 2016, Kopin, with the collaboration of the Malta College of Arts, Sciences and Technology (MCAST) organized the seminar “Building resilience to Climate Change”. The initial idea was to have a two-hour seminar with various speakers tackling the problem of climate change from different perspective.
